Our top tips to freeing up your time
This is a really simple way to free up your time. Not easy for all of us, but it really is one of the most effective ways to claw back some free time for you. A top tip for you to be more organised is to structure your diary and stick to it. Block out time in your diary for you every week, it’s important to take a break and recharge.
Keep on top of your paperwork; this can really pile up sometimes so make sure you organise your paperwork at least once a week. This will keep it from piling up and then taking hours out of your day to sort through. Organising your paperwork in chronological order will save you time if you ever need to go back through your records to find something.
One of our top tips for streamlining your bookkeeping is to use online accounting software. QuickBooks Online is one of the best software available; it has a great app, which allows you to keep track of your business on the go, 24/7. You can use your mobile to enter transactions, record expenses and send reports anywhere.
You are able to send instant quotes to customers whilst you are with them and send invoices. Using the mobile QuickBooks app you can run a profit and loss report or access a balance sheet. The app will send you notifications when a customer views or pays an invoice.
Using accounting software, like QuickBooks will help with your businesses efficiency, thus saving you more time. This will allow you to really focus on keeping your business on track.
